Optical engineering


ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

Job Mission

The mission of Industrial Engineer is to enable a successful mass production in factory and ability to perform service/maintenance/troubleshooting actions in CS. As an expert in SEM wafer alignment, you will function as the technical interface among San Jose D&E teams and internal customers (Factory/CS team).
This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Description

Work closely with SEM sensing & mechatronic team, to be responsible for reviewing design of the most advanced metrology/inspection electron beam system, participate in early design phase of wafer alignment flow, validate design concepts during system integration & prototype testing, carry out documentation and initiate Cost/CT/Availability analysis.
Participate in early design phase of product circle, work closely with designers to ensure all design specs are achieved and manufacturable. Catch failure and weak points during design phase and be able to perform diagnostic and failure analysis to identify root cause and improve yield at manufacturing.
Design manufacturing sequence to optimize cycle time and maximize performance, take up the ownership, influence designers/customers by explaining/presenting tech matters and validate performance data on proto systems.
Co-work with other engineering groups to assemble, test and qualify the new-designed optical modules. ensure integration and qualification at the system level successful, and take responsibility of the result in your part of competence and process.
Develop the required supporting documentation, such as assembly, calibration and qualification procedures; Transfer all related new designs, documentations and associated tooling and provide necessary trainings & knowledge sharing workshops to factory/CS.
